Munich (Germany) (AFP) - German football legend Uli Hoeness, boss of powerhouse club Bayern Munich, went on trial Monday for evading millions in taxes by hiding his wealth in a Swiss bank account. Hoeness, 62, would face a possible jail term if found guilty by the court in the southern city of Munich, which has scheduled a four-day trial with a verdict expected Thursday. At issue in the trial at Munich's higher regional court will be whether his declaration was valid and guarantees him immunity from prosecution.
